Chock-full of romance! The hero finally breaks down the heroine's reserve using "old-fashioned romance" although the story is not without it's sex scenes. Now don't get me wrong--I enjoy the sex scenes but it was nice to see the hero focus on the romantic aspect of the relationship before letting his "desire" get the better of him. I look forward to the other character's stories.
Kit made the book for me because he was so much fun. I wasn't fond of Lauren in the other books but I think Balogh did a very good job with her background story. Now she makes sense to me and I can sympathize with her more.
Fun book but if you read Balogh's books back to back, you will realize that they are all very similar.
This is one of my most favorite books. I love how the H & H start out as conspirators and quickly become comrades. The lowering of each's barriers is wonderful. Just thinking about this books makes me smile.
